Trump Considering Sending 14,000 More Troops to the Middle East

The Trump administration is considering a significant expansion of the U.S. military footprint in the Middle East, including dozens more ships, other military hardware and as many as 14,000 additional troops to counter Iran, U.S. officials said, according to The Wall Street Journal.

President Trump is expected to make a decision on the new deployments as soon as this month, those officials said, the Journal reports.

There is growing fear among U.S. military and other administration officials that an attack on U.S. interests and forces could leave the U.S. with few options in the region, officials said, notes WSJ.

And it gets better.

New DiLorenzo Book Coming on Lincoln

In a new essay up at LewRockwell.com, Trump vs. Lincoln: What’s a Republican to Think?, Tom DiLorenzo mentions in passing:
Having researched and written about Lincoln, his war, his statist economic policies, and his demolition of civil liberties over the past twenty years (my next Lincoln book will be published by Regnery in June), I have learned that all the typical American over the age of 35 knows about him is the few slogans that Americans are all taught in grade school – that he supposedly “freed the slaves with a stroke of a pen” and “saved the union,” both of which are undeniably false.  The under-35 population knows even less... The degree of delusion about Lincoln is orders of magnitude greater today than it was then [1943], thanks to the ongoing efforts of the court historians of the Lincoln cult.

Can't wait.

From the book's blurb:

Democratic Party Presidential Candidates and White Supremacy

Kamala Harris
Kamala Harris has dropped out of the Democratic Party presidential race and this is somehow supposed to prove that white supremacy exists in the Democratic Party/America.

Democratic Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang Goes Full Whipped Cream Idiot; Campaign Manager Has to Step In

Actually, I think he acts more like a fool when he claims he is going to pay everyone $1,000 per month.

Why Are College Students So Afraid of Me?


By Heather Mac Donald

Few things upset American college students more than being told they aren’t oppressed. I recently spoke at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass. I argued that American undergraduates are among the most privileged individuals in history by virtue of their unfettered access to knowledge. Far from being discriminated against, students are surrounded by well-meaning faculty who want all of them to succeed.

About 15 minutes into my talk,

Pete Davidson
This is just awesome.

Variety reports:
Whatever you do, never tweet at a Pete Davidson comedy show. The “Saturday Night Live” cast member has recently been doling out non-disclosure agreements before each of his recent comedy shows.

Most recently, fans attending Davidson’s standup at the Sydney Goldstein Theater were asked to sign a lengthy contract that forbade them from tweeting or instagramming any opinions about the performance.

I Present to You the Democratic Front Runner

Note: This is not all bad. There are no candidates that are leaning in the direction of shrinking government. So I prefer the candidate that would be least effective in rallying the masses in the direction of more government intervention.

Joe looks like the winner here.

Yes, the permanent apparatus of the state will continue to operate but that will happen under any president. At least with Joe, we won't have a "great" leader that everyone will follow.

Propagandists Want to Rebrand 'Climate Change' For Greater Shock Value: 'Climate Collapse'

Climate change alarmists are pushing for a change in vocabulary to scare people into taking global warming more seriously, starting with terms like “global meltdown,”“climate collapse,”  and "scorched earth," reports Breitbart.

Writing for AdAge, Aaron Hall argues that in order to get people to “take action” against climate change, “rebranding” is crucial, since people have gotten too used to the idea that climate is changing and need to be shocked into the notion that the world as we know it is ending.

As per usual with the shady Left, truth will not be an obstacle.

Historian Rips Apart New York Times Reporting on Slavery
